Google Gives Back to Art Nerds during New York Arts Week

SCOPE New York features app launches from Art Nerd/Field Trip & Collectrium


MARCH 4, 2013 – New York, NY – Art Nerd New York partners with SCOPE Art Show and Google’s Niantic Lab to launch a new digital experience for arts patrons.  On Wednesday, March 6, 2013 the SCOPE New York Art Show will open its doors at Skylight at Moynihan Station, the former Main New York Post Office with this innovative arts & technology partnership. Niantic Labs’ New Field Trip app plus the engaging Art Nerd guide to art and art history encourage and enlighten curious arts and culture mavens to explore their world, starting with New York City!

By downloading the Field Trip app on your smartphone and following Art Nerd, users can be alerted when they are walking by Andy Warhol’s old Factory building or Chuck Close’s Artist Studio.  The Art Nerd’s guide is full of hidden gems including a bit of the Berlin Wall in Midtown, Jean-Michel Basquiat’s old artist studio and Keith Haring’s former Pop Shop ceiling reinstalled at the New York Historical Society. The Field Trip app is the perfect tool to discover these sites.

Field Trip is a location-based app that automatically alerts users to cool, hidden and unique sights and destinations around them. With over 80 publishing partners globally, Field Trip lets users learn of history, art, the best bars and restaurants, and quirky facts around them as they walk. Google’s Niantic Lab will have a presence at SCOPE New York and the SXSW Interactive Conference this month.

More ‘artstech’ digital news comes from SCOPE as they launch a digital catalog of their New York art show.  Constantly seeking the cutting edge of emerging art, SCOPE leads the art world with the introduction of its App for iPhone and iPad.  Powered by Collectrium, the art world’s digital sharing solution, the SCOPE App now serves as a means of collecting your favorite pieces, identifying the art and exhibitors you have seen, and accessing previous SCOPE Show Catalogs.


Lastly, Art Nerd & Field Trip will be running two clever contests during SCOPE New York! An Art Nerd Trivia Quiz will be available at the Art Nerd Field Trip desk inside SCOPE.  By submitting all correct answers to the quiz, contestants enter to win a Grand Prize of a 2-night stay at new Hotel Americano in Chelsea, New Nexus 7 Tablet from Field Trip, Passes to the Brooklyn Museum of Art & swag from Art Nerd & Field Trip.  SCOPE is open March 6 – 10, 2013 11am-8pm.

The second contest is a social photo sharing contest open to anyone in the US starting March 4th. Win by taking a photo of a favorite Art Nerd site, sharing the photo on twitter or instagram with the tag #artnerdfieldtrip. Chances of winning are improved by downloading the Field Trip app, following and mentioning @ArtNerdNewYork and @FieldTripApp on Twitter.  Winners announced Monday March 11th.

The contest photo wall is here and the best three photos will win a Nexus 4 Phone or Nexus 7 Tablet. Winning photos selected by a panel of judges including Field Trip staff and Art Nerd New York Obsessions Curators.  Be sure to stop by the Art Nerd Field Trip desk and COLLECTRIUM desk to learn more about both of these new apps and exciting contests at SCOPE.
